I have a fleet of laptops managed by a ZCM 11 server. I have followed the documentation on configuring Windows 7 to allow for Zenworks deployment and pushed this image. When I run "Discover Advertised Devices" from the Deployment section of the Zenworks Control Center:

  • After 30 seconds to a minute 1 or 2 devices will appear in the Deployable Devices list.
  • After 30 minutes, half or most of the devices have appeared.
  • After an extended period, some of the remaining device may appear.
  • Some devices never appear as deployable in the list.

Discovering missing using IP discovery will cause them to appear in the list and operate normally from then on.

All laptops discovered appear as IP: instead of their hostname.

After discovering all required machines, deployment proceeds normally without fault.
